We are Badi, a global solution for urban living solving a world-class problem of housing shortage through our AI-powered online booking platform, that provides users with a seamless and secure room rental experience, all over the world.


Our working atmosphere in 3 words? Collaborative, energetic, rewarding.  We foster a strong company culture to empower and encourage our employees from all around the globe to keep up the good work, stimulate innovation and provide a better impact as a team. We collaborate because we truly believe achieving together makes more sense than achieving alone. We are working at a very fast pace to get things done. It's very rewarding not only because of our achievements but also because of the experience we acquire as we succeed or even fail at something. 

At Badi, you won’t find a job, you will create your own career path. We work hard while having fun. If you are as passionate as we are, we would love to get to know you. 

You will combine a thoroughbred background in product development, with a laser focus on the customer and in-depth appreciation of the commercial and technical impact of the product on the wider business. The responsibilities of the role extend across product strategy definition, prioritization, execution, evangelization and team management. 

This is a management role and a critical hire, due to exponential user growth and the increasing demands on the existing Product team. Reporting directly to the CTO, you will lead the entire Product Org. 

We are looking for a Head of Product who understands how to build, scale, motivate and retain a best-in-class product team which builds compelling and innovative products quickly and iteratively whilst ensuring they ship on time at velocity.

Your impact will come from:

Product Strategy and Execution:

  • Build Badi’s Product Strategy and Vision in collaboration with CEO, CTO and other key stakeholders
  • Build and execute a product roadmap aligned with Badi’s Product Strategy and Vision
  • Ensure appropriate resource allocation and delivery – ensuring products are shipped timely and with high quality Product & UX standards

Product Team Management:

  • Hire, onboard, train, and develop at an exceptional level
  • Ensure effective coaching, mentoring and further development of the team
  • Day to day management of the product teams, ensuring effective prioritization according to strategy

  • Resilient - strong character, perseverance, and grit. But you always remain humble and ready to give and receive feedback, accepting them as opportunities to grow or help others do so
  • Team Player - whatever the problem, part of the solution
  • Growth mindset - deliver with a startup attitude, think and produce quickly. Collaboration comes naturally to you, and you are capable of driving towards quick wins and last-minute opportunities
  • Strong sense of ownership - assume responsibility and commitment to tight, challenging deadlines

  • Strong executor - the talent for simplifying complex ideas and making them happen, does not get overwhelmed easily or stuck in planning mode
